For Song Saturday today, I give you a song by French Singer/Songwriter, Veronique Sanson. She was born on April 24, 1949, in Boulogne. She has an avid following in her native country, but also in Canada. She was one of my favourite singers when I was in High School in the 70s. This song, "Comme je l'imagine" (1972) is one that brings back memories of my high school years to me…
She began performing in a trio, the “Roche-Martin”, with François Bernheim and her sister Violaine Sanson. Her singing is strong and melodic, with distinctive harmonies and a very strong vibrato, which often makes her lyrics difficult to understand. She often plays the piano while she is singing, but also plays the guitar.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
